Harmer Drainage Package Chosen For Commercial Project

Alumasc’s Harmer Drainage products have provided a total soil and waste drainage solution for significant commercial development in Brighton.

Harmer SML lightweight cast iron soil and waste system and Harmer Roof and Floor drains were specified for the £140m scheme and supplied via the Horsham branch of the Drain Center, the UK’s leading national supplier of drainage products. The installation was carried out by Alumasc’s approved installer, Premier Services Installations (PSI) Ltd. Alumasc also worked closely with mechanical & electrical engineers on the project including the design and specification of the drainage system.

The Drain Center acted as distributor for all the Harmer products for what was one of its largest projects to date. Sales Manager for the Drain Center, David Hodgson commented: “Working as a team with Alumasc and their installers, PSI, we were able to ensure this major drainage project ran smoothly from start to finish. Timing was critical to maintain supply to the site. We liaised closely with PSI who provided timely and efficient notice of the products required at each stage and with Alumasc, who fast-tracked products to our Horsham branch to ensure all the deadlines were met.”

Harmer SML is the optimum choice for soil and waste pipework, offering many advantages for contractors and end users both in terms of installation and performance.

The system comes with the option of two-part ductile couplings or unique stainless steel ‘Duo’ couplings that enable faster fixing and built-in electrical continuity, whilst the fixing positions on one side of the coupling allows ease of fixing in confined spaces.

PSI installed the product using Alumasc’s unique Duomat Fixing Tool, which saved significant installation time on this project. The Duomat Fixing Tool is unique to the Harmer SML system and is suitable for use with any power drill. The tool enables both of the coupling bolts to be tightened simultaneously to the optimum torque setting of 7Nm-9Nm. Two independent preset clutches ensure the correct torque setting, irrespective of the pipe tolerances.

Harmer SML pipes are available in standard 3m lengths, with diameters of 50mm-400mm plus a comprehensive range of fittings and accessories. The system is BBA Agrément Certified fully compliant with BS EN 877 and is CE Marked to European Standards.
